hansokolow's notes: For a digital soundboard with several solid digital audience copies to choose from, this matrix presented a lot of problems. While I like the sound of Dave Brotman's FOB source over this one, I had trouble lining it up exactly with the DSBD (sometimes that happens), and the result was a constant, slowly changing atmospheric quality that was unacceptable. I switched to this DAUD and things lined up much better. This DAUD has level adjustments in the opener, Feel Like A Stranger, and I counter adjusted to try to account for that. This DSBD has some limitations. Although it comes with a decent amount of crowd noise, there is a bit of mutedness to it, which is greatly enhanced by adding the DAUD, imho. The analog SBD patches all over set 2 created brief phasing and weirdness and are fairly noticeable, but I left it that way, as it is less jarring as pulling out the SBD entirely. The first instance is at around 9 seconds into Fire On The Mountain, then again at 10:07, at 10:36, for 19 seconds (this is the worst of it), and at 11:16; in Terrapin at 9:24 for 6 seconds, at 9:58 for 4 seconds, briefly at 10:21 and 11:05, and finally at 11:23; in The Other One, at 6:16 for about 4 seconds; in Wharf Rat at 0:41, at 1:07, at 2:36, at 6:28, at 8:41, and at 10:27; and in Sugar Magnolia at 5:21. Also, hardly an issue, some crowd noise is missing from the DSBD between Fire and Playin'. Both these FOB sources had a gap of about the same size in Drums, from 1:32 to 3:47, so that section is all soundboard. The DAUD had some bad digital fuzz in the last few seconds of the encore, so I patched in Brotman's DFOB for that section, from 5:00 to 5:04.
